Arts Development


Blaby District Council supports the development of Arts throughout the district by working with a number of partner groups to provide events and opportunities locally.

Active arts

Active Arts are a Countesthorpe based group and have been promoting all things arty in and around Countesthorpe since 1976.

They are an entirely voluntary group and are a not-for-profit organisation. In other words they take nothing out other than the pleasure we get from doing the work, and any profits made get put back to fund the future programme.

A list of programmes and events can be found on the Active Arts Website 

Leicestershire arts partnership

Live and Local

During 2015 Live and Local took over the management of three touring schemes in the East Midlands, including Centre Stage in Leicestershire.  

The scheme provides live professional performances at village or community venues. For more information visit the Live and Local website.

Centre Screen

Centre Screen is a mobile cinema scheme which enables you to show blockbuster or archive films in a venue on your doorstep. It is run for us by Phoenix Arts, Leicester. To find out more, see Centre Screen.
